The collections Tres and Persian Colors come together to create a very special pouf, a lightweight cylindrical accessory, manageable and adaptable to any space, presented in two models: Black and Vegetal.
The combination Tres + Persian Colors impact the senses in a very unique way. The Persian seat is very soft and comfortable, and the Tres body is enormously contemporary. The seat fibre is very pleasant to the touch due to its softness, which means that when you rest your feet on it you really feel you are touching a soft rug, providing a feeling of comfort and wellbeing.
The sides of the Tres Persian Pouf Black are made with nanimarquina’s Tres black rug and the seat is made with Persian Colors re-edited in matt black. The sides of the Tres Persian Pouf Vegetal are made with the Tres Vegetal rug and the seat with the Persian Colors re-edited in natural matt color.
Both the Tres and the Persian Colors collections reflect nanimarquina’s passion for craftsmanship. Through both collections, and now also with the new Tres Persian Pouf, an optimistic call is made to see beauty in details and respect tradition.
True to her design roots, Nani Marquina launched her namesake brand in 1987, a time in which contemporary rugs were non-existent in Spain.
After studying industrial design at the Escuela Massana of Barcelona and enjoying the success of her first bespoke textile designs, Nani launched nanimarquina, a brand dedicated to the design, creation, and distribution of rugs and textile products for the home, based on values such as observation, innovation, and enthusiasm, with the goal to use traditional craftsmanship and techniques to create contemporary pieces.
In 1993, Nani Marquina embarked on a daring business venture: she moved manufacturing facilities to the north of India. The further incorporation of craftsmanship and tradition as a new design concept marked a clear difference, consolidating the brand.
Throughout the years, the brand has garnered numerous awards such as the National Design Award and the Premi Cambra a la Gestió Empresarial (Chamber Award for Design Management) in 2005, as well as several nominations for the Príncipe Felipe Award for Company Excellence. Nani Marquina has also recently received the International Women’s Entrepreneurial Challenge Award from the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, a personal achievement that led to the 2007 FIDEM Award for Entrepreneurial Woman of the Year. She has enjoyed tenure as the Chairwoman of ADP (Professional Design Association), and of Red (Reunión Empresas de Diseño). Starting in 2014, Nani Marquina is the President of the FAD, (Foment de les Arts i Disseny), in Barcelona.
